Australian builders and property developers are having to deal with disruptions to projects as a result of not being able to get supplies from China due to the coronavirus. A lack of elevator parts and components is of particular concern to builders, with WT Partnership Australia executive director David Stewart noting that any delays in having a building’s lift installed has a knock-on effect in terms of the rest of the building schedule. Supply-chain problems can cause delays of up to $200,000 a day on the biggest building sites.
